WBA Foundation

Founded in 1981, the mission of the WBA Foundation is to leverage the generosity of lawyers and friends to support nonprofits that serve the legal and related needs of women and girls in the DC Metropolitan community.

​To further this mission, the WBA Foundation supports community non-profit organizations in the D.C. Metropolitan Area through its annual grant program. For more information about our grantees or the grant application process read our grant program page. The WBA Foundation also offers Founders Fellowship each year to an area law school to support a student who is pursuing a public interest summer internship to advance the legal interests of women and children.
